This jam is now over. It ran from 2019-05-31 23:00:00 to 2019-07-31 23:00:00. View 21 entries

You hear the pulsing and clanking machines echo through the empty warehouses around you. A shaft of sunlight, shines through the grimy window in the corrugated iron overhead. Dust motes float heavy in the air, you suppress a sneeze. Wouldn't do to alert that thing in the courtyard. On a desk illuminated by the shaft of sunlight, a yellowed old computer whirs. The screen, an ancient CRT monitor flickers. A message in bright green letters in the darkness of the screen says "MAKE A GAME." As you move closer the screen flickers black for a second and a stab of white noise screams from the speakers. The screen now reads "BEFORE IT COMES FOR YOU." Below the text a horizontal line flashes on and off. You sit down in the chair, it's like the ones you used in school, hard plastic fastened to a simple metal frame. You hear shuffling beyond the big rusty garage door that leads to the courtyard. You type "Before what comes for me?" Again the screen goes black and the white noise screams momentarily. The screen now reads "THE THING IN THE COURTYARD." You start trying to type another question, but the screen goes black and the white noise screams and you see the desktop of the computer at home in your room. The only thing out of place is a text file RULES.txt. You shakily double click it and read the following:

  1. DO NOT ENTER THE COURTYARD
